    Default Are unusual names cruel?

    I know a guy who's name is spelt - Goshewa - as his mum was 15 when he was born and apparently didn't know how to spell Joshua

    I don't know Neekie's daughters name but I'm gonna guess, and no one has to say right or wrong, doesn't matter, but I guess Harlequin... And if that's true, well I think it's very pretty

    OMG!! Im almost crying. It might be harsh but this is super funny

    Del, Thats what we were going for, names that were different, easy enough to spell and pronounce and suit the child. His name was going to be Neo, then he was born and his defining feature wouldnt fit with Neo. With DS1 his name was made up to accomodate both my love of unusual names and DPs want for a certain name that i wouldnt agree to. DS1 has 3names to choose from, but his suits him perfectly.

    Exactly? *shrugs* I'm always amused when parents give these way out names then shorten the nickname to something more 'normal' like Belle. Which tells me they know the child's name is going to cause them grief.... yet do it anyway

    I knew of a baby called Precious. Might suit a newborn when they are cute and smell lovely, but how could an adult woman be taken seriously with a name like Precious??

    Ohh lovely We changed the O to a U. Less chance of people mis-pronouncing his name that way. I do worry when he gets older if his name will be too 'childish', i went to school with a boy with the same name and it never seemed too young for him so im hoping the same will apply for ds2.

    Actually Neekie, you raise a good point. More often than not, when one child hadsa 'special' name, the tradition continues with the siblings, increasing the foolishness to the outside observer.

    Take jamie Olivers kids mentioned earlier.

    On their own, each name might not be too bad. But the 4 of them together just looks totally ridonkulous.
